Protea Hotel by Marriott Pretoria Capital, Pretoria
Good hotel -- even if not perfect.
The hotel itself is showing some signs of aging. The room was sprayed heavily with some kind of deodorizer. There were discolorations on the carpet. The lobby area and entryway were nice and inviting. The service was generally good in each area that I used it. The checkout process was a bit slow and annoying. The attendants at the parking gate were probably the friendliest people I encountered. They smiled twice as often as the people I encountered at the front desk. The cashier in the restaurant during breakfast seemed not to speak English very well so it made the encounter for breakfast a bit awkward. Also, every time I stepped out of the front door of the hotel, there were crowds of people moving about through the driveway of the hotel going to buses and other transportation. It felt a bit congested in front of the building every time I walked out. The room attendants were friendly and quiet.

I would have paid a little more for another place.
I booked this place because I had been camping in tents out in the bush the previous 11 days, so any hotel was a welcome change. I wanted to be in the vicinity of some consulates so I could apply for visas. First 500mb of data is free on their wifi, but gets quite pricey when you need more. Not much to do outside of the property, but good food at the hotel restaurant and located near a Gautrain station. Found a roach in my shower and hotel is located near a school so I was awoken to the sound of school bells every 45 minutes after 7am.
